we'll see showers continuing through the night. most of the day tomorrow is on the dry side. future weather 8:00 a.m. tomorrow. and maybe isolated shower. tomorrow, pretty nice afternoon, temperatures in the low 50s for the most part. the showers around 7:00, dry through 7:00, dry through 8:00 and dry through 9:00 and 10, 11:00 tomorrow, and noise the enhanced rainfall and it may wake you up tomorrow night if you're out there sleeping. anyway -- hopefully you're inside sleeping. as you move on through sunday, notice 10:00, a couple showers. by the time the game starts the rain will be out of here. that's good news for skins as they take on the packers. notice back this way, that is all snow towards garrett county, not coming here but the cold air
will come in during the skins game. the 4:40 start on a warm note. 58 degrees, and cooler by 4:00. it will be rather windy if you're doing tailgating. by the end of the game, 45, feels like 38 and temperatures will fall fairly quickly. high temperatures, 40s and 50s. not bad. 63 saturday and falling temperatures all day. high of 44 on monday and 42 on tuesday. and the first chance of snow on wednesday, the first alberta clipper of the season. normally they do not give us a lot of snowfall but give us very cold air. high on wednesday, wind chills between 15 and 20 all day. coldest day of the season. coming up, playoff football in the nation's capitol. there's a great deal of pressure on kirk cousins and company but
skins have good reason. washington won their last four games and green bay struggled down the stretch. redskins as healthy as you could hope to be this late in the season. packers are beat up in critical positi positions. the one advantage for green bay is a big one. it's playoff experience. in that category, it's not even all that close. sunday will be the packers 12th playoff game since 2009, compare that to just two over that same stretch for washington. this also marks the seventh straight post-season experience for green bay. redskins as a team haven't been this far all that much. there's at least a little playoff experience in the washington locker room. that could make a big difference sunday. >> i had one playoff game. this is still fairly new to me. we're all in this thing together. in the grand scheme of things, it's another football game, although it is a big one. once the clock starts, it's just a football game. >> the speed of the game goes up
tremendo tremendously. regular season -- not going to say it's not fast but not as fast as the playoffs. so mistakes are possible and try to take advantage of every opportunity you're given to make plays. >> all right. desean jackson says the game is faster in the playoffs. how about a fast start on sunday? skins have jumped out to big leads in three of their last four wins and replicating that with the packers would go a long way towards washington going to the divisional round. >> i think it's our players making great plays, kirk recognizing where the ball should go throwing it and linemen protecting running the ball efficiently and the backs reading and everybody getting their combination. it's a player's game and i think they've done a great job exec e executing the games they've been winning. >> remember last time wizards swept toronto raptors out of the
playoffs. they haven't forgotten. 25 points. wiz up by as many as 10 in the opening frame. washington had no answer for this guy, demarre deroczen, all-star guard on the triple. closing on a 24-6 run. with the bucket. watch as he falls to the ground. another scary moment for the already beat up wiz. watch te right wrist. would shake it off. and a season high 35 points and raptors win their third straight over the wiz, 8-11 at home. late breaking news tonight. according to multiple reports nationals traded pitcher bruce store re storens. he had great moments here but struggled especially late last year. guys, that's all the time we've got for sports.
